Headed out on a camping trip this summer? The warmer weather means getting back to nature and exploring peaceful forests and terrains. But if the idea of sleeping on the hard ground or wrestling with an air mattress pump at the end of a long day is less than appealing, we've got you covered.

The answer? The Ivation EZ-Bed Air Mattress. This self-inflating mattress saves valuable pack space since you won't need a pump. You can even use it to automatically find your preferred level of inflation: Pick from plush, medium and firm. The best part? It has legs and a full frame.

What is a Self-Inflating Air Mattress?

Unlike a sleeping bag, an air mattress provides more volume, thickness and comfort for sleeping while camping. Made of polyester and FiberTech, an air mattress can also serve as a makeshift inflatable bed for guests in your home. When you're done sleeping, deflate the mattress, roll it up and take or store it anywhere you choose.

A self-inflatable air mattress, however, takes the ease of setup to the next level. As the name suggests, it relies on a built-in pump to make sure the mattress fills to the desired size. The Ivation EZ-Bed Air Mattress does so in less than four minutes, and provides support with a bed frame and legs!

Here's everything else you need to know about this genius product.

The EZ air mattress features three settings that allow your desired firmness for better sleep, too — plush, medium or firm.

The silent secondary pump helps the mattress maintain the firmness level throughout the night. When it's time to put it away, the mattress easily deflates and folds into a zip-up rolling duffle bag that you can stash in the closet or load in the trunk for camping.

  • Doesn't require a separate pump;

  • Auto on-off function;
  • Three settings for firmness;
  • Incredibly soft, with 40 circular coils and a puncture-proof polyester top.

Cons

  • Needs an electric outlet to operate.

The Best Amazon User Reviews

With more than 1,200 five-star reviews on Amazon, shoppers are raving about the mattress's inflatable features, comfort levels and ease of use.

"I love the convenience of having this bed," writes verified Amazon purchaser Amanda. "It is super easy to inflate and deflate!"

"You literally just plug the bed in and it inflates and pops out on its own," writes Zoe. "Just get it."

And Sandy D. writes, "This has proven to be a great product. It inflated without hesitation. Plug in, push the button and stand back. The bed does the rest."

Where to Buy the Ivation EZ-Bed Self-Inflating Air Mattress

At $329 on Amazon for a full-size option, this isn't the cheapest air mattress available. But it makes temporary sleep more comfy, and it's cheaper than multiple nights in a hotel room or buying a sleeper sofa for guests.

The mattress is also sold at Target, Walmart, and Wayfair.
